COMMENT: Summer gardens are in bloom, and tomatoes are all around us. I have created this simple and wonderful mushroom sauce to use all of these magnificent tomatoes. Use my recipe for Homemade Tomato Sauce to make this even more special.
- 2 cups fresh or rehydrated mixed mushrooms including chanterelles
- 4 cups Homemade Tomato Sauce*
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup shallots, minced
- 6 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 ounce dry red wine
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Sauté shallots and garlic for 5-6 minutes until garlic is brown around the edges. Add mushrooms and sauté for 5-10 minutes reducing any liquid by half. Deglaze the pan with red wine and add Homemade tomato sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 -20 minutes. Serve over hot pasta.
